#5 Indians Fall To #19 Tates Creek At Home

The Indians of Madison Central (20-6) came into the game Tuesday night against 
Tates Creek coming off a shut out loss Monday to South Laurel. Indians are a 
perfect 8-0 against region opponents and are 3-3 in their last six games. 
Central is averaging nine runs a game and tonight they faced one of the state's 
best pitchers in Konner Lewis. Lewis entered the contest with a 0.55 ERA. 
Indians started Casey Bargo who hasn't seen much action this season. He was on a 
pitch count to begin this one. Bargo allowed the game's first run in the second 
inning. Noah Blythe reached base on a 6-4 fielders choice and a balk moved him 
to second. A wild pitch and base hit from Chandler Workman put Creek on top and 
they would never trail. Bottom of the second Central had a chance to get even 
after Scott Simmons singled and Tyler Storie walked but they were stranded. 
Commodores get another run in the third after a controversial play at first 
where catcher Ben Snapp threw down and appeared to have picked off the runner 
but he was ruled safe. A base hit later scored the run. Indians get on the board 
in bottom of third when Trey Eden led off with a single and advanced to second 
on an E 7. A sacrifice bunt moves him to third where he came home on a single 
from Logan Thomason. 
The fourth inning saw Bargo replaced by Bryce Travis on the mound. Bargo went 
three innings allowing five hits and two runs, one of them earned. The first 
hitter Travis faced Eli Tencza, doubled and later scored. Tates Creek loaded the 
bases but Travis was able to leave the stranded. The fifth inning saw the 
visitors open it up with five runs and they go onto to win 10-5. 
For the Indians Trey Eden with three hits including a triple and an RBI, Logan 
Thomason with three hits two of those being doubles and he drove in two runs, 
Bryce Travis with a hit, Scott Simmons with a base hit, and D'Marko Foster with 
a double. Cameron Travis came in relief and had posted two and a third inning of 
work allowing two hits, a run, while striking out two. Indians return to action 
Wednesday at #5 Scott County.
